ELM stopped working

Post by gg1234635 » Tue Mar 19, 2019 8:40 pm

Hi All

I have searched the forum and still no closer to solving the issue. My ELM reader has decided to stop working. The computer see the USB connected and i get the read light on my ELM but now it just refuses to connect to the car. All i get from ForScan is the standard "No ELM Found. Please check connection and try again"
I know its not the laptop as i have tried it on another and still have the same issue. I do have a wifi one and that still works so i know the program and the car are fine?

I have connected the seller of the item and awaiting to hear back from them.

Any ideas or programs out there i could try and check that ELM has not fried itself or something?

Ive checked the drivers. and no yellow marks in device manager. As far as i can see it looks like the ELM Chip itself that has the issue. The fact its not working on a completely different laptop with the manufacture driver would indicate that its more than just a simply driver issue

Neither can I. Its only ever been plugged into one car. and i know its not the car as my wifi one works still. So odd. Lets hope the seller gets incontact with me and work out best way to resolve this
